It was a happy night for the area's three West of Scotland Football League big boys on Wednesday, as they all picked up handsome home wins.

Cumnock put their recent slump in form behind them in convincing style, as they smashed Kilwinning Rangers 5-2 at Townhead Park.

It's Cumnock's first win of 2023, and their first league victory since the end of November - and they did it in some style after opening up a 5-0 lead over the Buffs at half-time.

A hat-trick from Jordan Moore and goals from Brendan Sharpe and Greg Ferry secured the three points.

Cumncok boss Brian McGinty had been critical of his players over the last few weeks, but he was delighted with what he saw last night.

Speaking to the club's social media channel after the game, he said: "It takes big characters to turn up and play how we did in the first half.

"We need to make sure this is a turning point for us. It was a really good performance on the night, but that's all it was."

Cumnock's next match is at home to Largs Thistle this Saturday, January 28. Kick off is 1.30pm.

In Auchinleck, Talbot grabbed their fifth league win in a row with a comfortable 3-0 over Largs.

Aaron Mason, Ross Taylor and Keir Samson got the three goals that meant three points for Tommy Sloan's men.

The win moves them to within eight points of league leaders Darvel, with Talbot having two games in hand.

Auchinleck's next match is also at home on Saturday, against Petershill, with a 1.30pm kick off.

Things came full circle in New Cumnock as Glenafton got the better of Petershill 3-1 at Loch Park.

New man Scott McLean got on the scoresheet, along with Hugh Kerr and Ollie Rowe.

It's the Glens' first league win in four matches, and a crucial three points ahead of a big game this weekend.

Glenafton host Kirkintilloch Rob Roy on Saturday, with Rob Rob only one point behind the Glens in the leage.

Kick off for this one is also 1.30pm.
